12 Tips for training older teachers to use technology

12 Tips for training older teachers to use technology | Teacher Professional Development | Scoop.it
There is an assumption that persists in the educational community that more mature teachers are much more difficult and reluctant to be trained on the effective use of educational technology. To some degree, I think this assumption has been built on by the digital native vs digital immigrant myth. But as someone who has trained teachers of all ages all over the world I would say that, from my own experience, this hasn’t been the case.

Given the plethora of tools, there is no one way to engage in professional learning. Create a system that allows you to curate content, save great resources, and share with others in whatever way best fits your learning style, devices, and preferences.

The Main Reason For Professional Development For Teachers

The Main Reason For Professional Development For Teachers | Teacher Professional Development | Scoop.it
This morning spent some time reading and thinking about professional development for teachers. It's an important issue - especially these days with the public demanding we root out "bad" teachers and set up systems of evaluating teachers.Most good educational systems ask teachers to (even demand by law) engage in some form of professional development. This can take many forms but is usually formal and involves conferences, additional qualification courses, workshops, online engagement

Why Pedagogy First, Tech Second Stance is Key to the Future

Why Pedagogy First, Tech Second Stance is Key to the Future | Teacher Professional Development | Scoop.it
When implementing and successfully sustaining a mobile learning initiative, it is imperative not to allow the device to drive instruction. Lessons, curriculum, schools and districts should never be built around technology. Everything we do in education should be built around learning. Thus, if the ultimate goal is to improve student outcomes then the role of any mobile device initiative should be to support or enhance learning.

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Case Studies on Integrating ICT into Teacher Education Curriculum in Asia

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Case Studies on Integrating ICT into Teacher Education Curriculum in Asia | Teacher Professional Development | Scoop.it

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become an integral part of our daily lives for the last decades. The dramatic adaptation of ICT has in turn called for education reforms at various levels with a view to creating an enabling educational environment for next generations to effectively function in the digital era. Therefore, teachers’ capacity of integrating ICT into their teaching practices plays a critical role in achieving the goals of the education reform.
